Instance Method Details

#number_to_currency(number, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Formats a number into a currency string (e.g., $13.65). You can customize the format in the options hash.

The currency unit and number formatting of the current locale will be used unless otherwise specified in the provided options. No currency conversion is performed. If the user is given a way to change their locale, they will also be able to change the relative value of the currency displayed with this helper. If your application will ever support multiple locales, you may want to specify a constant :locale option or consider using a library capable of currency conversion.

Options

  • :locale - Sets the locale to be used for formatting (defaults to current locale).

  • :precision - Sets the level of precision (defaults to 2).

  • :unit - Sets the denomination of the currency (defaults to “$”).

  • :separator - Sets the separator between the units (defaults to “.”).

  • :delimiter - Sets the thousands delimiter (defaults to “,”).

  • :format - Sets the format for non-negative numbers (defaults to “%u%n”). Fields are %u for the currency, and %n for the number.

  • :negative_format - Sets the format for negative numbers (defaults to prepending an hyphen to the formatted number given by :format). Accepts the same fields than :format, except %n is here the absolute value of the number.

Examples

number_to_currency(1234567890.50)                # => "$1,234,567,890.50"
number_to_currency(1234567890.506)               # => "$1,234,567,890.51"
number_to_currency(1234567890.506, precision: 3) # => "$1,234,567,890.506"
number_to_currency(1234567890.506, locale: :fr)  # => "1 234 567 890,51 €"
number_to_currency('123a456')                    # => "$123a456"

number_to_currency(-1234567890.50, negative_format: '(%u%n)')
# => "($1,234,567,890.50)"
number_to_currency(1234567890.50, unit: '£', separator: ',', delimiter: '')
# => "£1234567890,50"
number_to_currency(1234567890.50, unit: '£', separator: ',', delimiter: '', format: '%n %u')
# => "1234567890,50 £"

end

#number_to_delimited(number, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Formats a number with grouped thousands using delimiter (e.g., 12,324). You can customize the format in the options hash.

Options

  • :locale - Sets the locale to be used for formatting (defaults to current locale).

  • :delimiter - Sets the thousands delimiter (defaults to “,”).

  • :separator - Sets the separator between the fractional and integer digits (defaults to “.”).

  • :delimiter_pattern - Sets a custom regular expression used for deriving the placement of delimiter. Helpful when using currency formats like INR.

Examples

number_to_delimited(12345678)                    # => "12,345,678"
number_to_delimited('123456')                    # => "123,456"

number_to_delimited(12345678, delimiter: ',')    # => "12,345,678"
number_to_delimited(12345678.05, separator: ' ') # => "12,345,678 05"
number_to_delimited(12345678.05, locale: :fr)    # => "12 345 678,05"
number_to_delimited('112a')                      # => "112a"

#number_to_human(number, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Pretty prints (formats and approximates) a number in a way it is more readable by humans (eg.: 1200000000 becomes “1.2 Billion”). This is useful for numbers that can get very large (and too hard to read).

See number_to_human_size if you want to print a file size.

You can also define your own unit-quantifier names if you want to use other decimal units (eg.: 1500 becomes “1.5 kilometers”, 0.150 becomes “150 milliliters”, etc). You may define a wide range of unit quantifiers, even fractional ones (centi, deci, mili, etc).

Options

  • :locale - Sets the locale to be used for formatting (defaults to current locale).

  • :precision - Sets the precision of the number (defaults to 3).

  • :significant - If true, precision will be the number of significant_digits. If false, the number of fractional digits (defaults to true)

  • :separator - Sets the separator between the fractional and integer digits (defaults to “.”).

  • :delimiter - Sets the thousands delimiter (defaults to “”).

  • :strip_insignificant_zeros - If true removes insignificant zeros after the decimal separator (defaults to true)

  • :units - A Hash of unit quantifier names. Or a string containing an i18n scope where to find this hash. It might have the following keys:

    • integers: :unit, :ten, :hundred, :thousand, :million, :billion, :trillion, :quadrillion

    • fractionals: :deci, :centi, :mili, :micro, :nano, :pico, :femto

  • :format - Sets the format of the output string (defaults to “%n %u”). The field types are:

    • %u - The quantifier (ex.: 'thousand')

    • %n - The number

Examples

number_to_human(123)                         # => "123"
number_to_human(1234)                        # => "1.23 Thousand"
number_to_human(12345)                       # => "12.3 Thousand"
number_to_human(1234567)                     # => "1.23 Million"
number_to_human(1234567890)                  # => "1.23 Billion"
number_to_human(1234567890123)               # => "1.23 Trillion"
number_to_human(1234567890123456)            # => "1.23 Quadrillion"
number_to_human(1234567890123456789)         # => "1230 Quadrillion"
number_to_human(489939, precision: 2)        # => "490 Thousand"
number_to_human(489939, precision: 4)        # => "489.9 Thousand"
number_to_human(1234567, precision: 4,
                         significant: false) # => "1.2346 Million"
number_to_human(1234567, precision: 1,
                         separator: ',',
                         significant: false) # => "1,2 Million"

number_to_human(500000000, precision: 5)           # => "500 Million"
number_to_human(12345012345, significant: false)   # => "12.345 Billion"

Non-significant zeros after the decimal separator are stripped out by default (set :strip_insignificant_zeros to false to change that):

number_to_human(12.00001) # => “12” number_to_human(12.00001, strip_insignificant_zeros: false) # => “12.0”

Custom Unit Quantifiers

You can also use your own custom unit quantifiers:

number_to_human(500000, units: { unit: 'ml', thousand: 'lt' })  # => "500 lt"

If in your I18n locale you have:

distance:
  centi:
    one: "centimeter"
    other: "centimeters"
  unit:
    one: "meter"
    other: "meters"
  thousand:
    one: "kilometer"
    other: "kilometers"
  billion: "gazillion-distance"

Then you could do:

number_to_human(543934, units: :distance)            # => "544 kilometers"
number_to_human(54393498, units: :distance)          # => "54400 kilometers"
number_to_human(54393498000, units: :distance)       # => "54.4 gazillion-distance"
number_to_human(343, units: :distance, precision: 1) # => "300 meters"
number_to_human(1, units: :distance)                 # => "1 meter"
number_to_human(0.34, units: :distance)              # => "34 centimeters"

def number_to_human(number, options = {})
  NumberToHumanConverter.convert(number, options)
end

#number_to_human_size(number, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Options

  • :locale - Sets the locale to be used for formatting (defaults to current locale).

  • :precision - Sets the precision of the number (defaults to 3).

  • :significant - If true, precision will be the number of significant_digits. If false, the number of fractional digits (defaults to true)
